Help Defensive Contribution From Wide Men

Recommended Posts

I've noticed my wide players don't join the team to defend the central areas. They sit on the flanks while the defence is getting hammered by the opposition. The only time they contribute to defending is when the ball is on the flanks. Winning the ball on the flanks is nice but I want to them to sit narrower and defend the half spaces to deny central progression. 

I play a 442 and because the wide players keep hugging the touchline, there are always big gaps in the middle. Compactness is important for me. I've used all the roles(Winger, wide midfielder). 

The inverted winger is not a good option because while I want them to sit narrower without the ball and compress space in the middle, I also want them to run wide after winning the ball and stretch the defence.

I thought a narrow width would work but there isn't any difference. 

Can wingers with high teamwork make this happen or it's just something that is impossible in FMM?
